Voted...


...today.  My mail in ballot finally arrived and I filled it out and mailed it already.  Not a major stretch.  I think what I ended up doing was not voting for the best candidate but rather voting for the lesser of two evils.  Not in every case of course but unfortunately in many.  My favorite people who should have been on the ballot were not for various reasons.   Either they lost their primary or decided to drop out of the race early.  I don't blame them and it might have been the best thing for them in the long run.  This is not a good time to be an elected official.  You get beat up winning the election and then go into office and immediately be attacked by both sides, both parties.  It is hard to do a good job when you can't figure out who your friends might be.  As a recovering politician I have to fight the demons every day as my phone rings with requests or I get e mail asking for my help.  My heart goes out to anyone who truly wants to save the world.  It is a lonely battle.
